Alton Webteam: March 2017
March has been a busy month for the Junior Section. A main activity each week has been menu planning and cooking, with some very tasty looking pizzas being made by the boys and taken home to enjoy at the end of the evening. They will be making their dessert course next, will they remember all they know about healthy eating as they do this?
Alongside the cooking, the boys have been creating their artworks for the upcoming Competitions Day. With this year's theme being Jesus' healing miracles, the boys have been making pictures showing the story of the paralysed man lowered through the roof to Jesus by his friends (Mark 2:1-12). They have also been practising their figure-marching ready for the competition. The "figure of eight" is a new manoeuvre for them and proving quite a challenge. With the artwork completed we will be concentrating on performing the play and learning the song over the next couple of Fridays. Hopefully we will be ready to face the judges at the Competitions Day on 25th March.
Some of our 3rd Year boys have been attending band practice with the Company Section on Wednesday evening and they will have the chance to show off their new skills when the band leads the Boys' Brigade and Girls' Brigade in the Spring Parade to the Church on Sunday 2nd April.
